UBS maintains a 'Buy' on Ford (NYSE: F) price target of $15.00 (from $16.00).

Analyst, Colin Langan, said, "Ford announced that deteriorating conditions (pricing) in Europe have resulted in a Q2 loss of ~$570m overseas (3x Q1’s -$190m). This is ~$310m (~$0.06/shr) worse than our prior Q2 estimate. Ford also is evaluating their full year guidance of about flat y/y pretax income. While disappointing, this is largely priced-in as many investors expect auto estimates to be cut. We still see significant upside to the shares. Ford is trading at 7x our revised 2012 EPS, below its ~10x decade average."

FY12 EPS estimate lowered from $1.60 to $1.45, FY13 from $1.95 to $1.80, FY14 from $2.20 to $2.05, and FY15 from $2.35 to $2.20.
